Music Online

NYU Libraries subscribes to the Music Online series, a collection of databases that includes thousands of audio clips that users can listen to online:

The Classical Music Library
“fully searchable classical music resource—a comprehensive database of distinguished classical recordings. It includes tens of thousands of licensed recordings.”

Smithsonian Global Sound
“virtual encyclopedia of the world’s musical and aural traditions”

African American Song
“With jazz, blues, gospel, and other forms of African American musical expression represented, African American Song brings 50,000 tracks of music to the ears of library patrons and music scholars.”

American Song (coming soon)
“includes music that relates to almost every walk of American life, every ethnic group, and every time period.

NEW: Classical Scores Library
“contains 400,000 pages of the most important classical music scores, manuscripts, and previously unpublished material, allowing for the study and analysis of more than 8,000 musical scores. Many items have associated audio tracks in Classical Music Library, so that subscribers to both databases can listen to a recording online while following along with the full score.”
